Yesterday marked my long ride ever, coming in at approximately 139 miles as a part of the Rapha Gentlemen’s Race. We headed out to the beach (Lincoln City) on Friday evening and stayed in a suite at the Inn at Spanish Head thanks to team president Jim who served as sugar daddy for the evening. [...]
I’m Adam. Welcome to my blog. This is a place where I journal what I’m up to, what I’m thinking about, and really anything else that strikes me.
A bit more about me:
I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, and came to Oregon for college. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2008 and immediately found an amazing gig where I traveled the country full-time on a marketing tour for six months. After an intense 4 month job search following that, I landed a great job where I currently explore how to effectively use social media for marketing in addition to performing search engine optimization and aiding other marketing team efforts.
Things I’m into:
I’m an avid cyclist. I’ve ridden bikes nearly my entire life and have been a competitive road cyclist for the last 6 years. I raced on the University of Oregon Cycling Team for 4 years, and now I race for Team Oregon, one of the largest state-wide amateur cycling teams in Oregon.
I also run, golf, play some tennis, fenced in high school, and enjoy a multitude of other mainstream and not-so-mainstream sports. I’m an outdoor enthusiast and I enjoy living in the Pacific Northwest.
I’m a technology geek. I got into computers in elementary school, started building desktops in high school, and now I’m knowledgeable in everything from hardware to software to social media and digital design. If it’s tech and it’s new, I’m into it.
I’m an amateur photographer. I’ve been into photography for a while, but I only recently got myself a nice DSLR. With affordable high-end cameras that take great pictures available for all, it’s tough to call yourself a good photographer these days. I’d simply say I’m competent, and I enjoy geeking out learning more about it all the time.
I love food. All kinds of food. This goes well with the fact that I’m a cyclist, because I can eat and enjoy food, and lots of it. Mexican, Thai, Italian, Greek, American, and anything else – you put it in front of me, it’ll disappear.
